Someday You'll Return is a Psychological Horror Game Set for 2019

What would you do? If your daughter never came home, but you could track her down. Would you go?

It’s not the first time she ran away. But you’re uneasy … this time feels so different. Long ago, you swore never to return here. And now, she has dragged you back. Your search leads deep into ancient Moravian forests and reveals secrets that should have stayed buried.

Your character is Daniel, Stela’s father, who is forced by events to return to this place with its dark memories. In his search, he will encounter peculiar people who may help him understand why Stela tries so hard to leave. Someday You’ll Return deals with intimate concepts of fatherhood, fears, lies and refusal to accept one’s past. While the story contains strong horror elements it’s not always the most obvious monsters which are the most frightening.

Follow Daniel’s through soaring, mystic Bohemian landscapes. For all their beauty, there is a quiet darkness. While your survival skills and quick wits might advance your search, malevolent forces rise up against you. There are nightmares you can’t fight and win. And some of them... could be your own.
